My sleep schedule all depends on how many episodes of stargate I watch before I decide its enough.

During the week I'll generally go to sleep around 12am-1am. Of course, nearly every day, I'm shocked to find out it's actually that late, and I'll have to stop doing something and go to sleep. Whether or not I actually fall asleep then is sort of hit or miss.

Currently, I seem to be in a cycle of "good sleep" nights, but the last couple weeks before this were pretty insomnia ridden. I'd be ready for sleep, tired, comfortable, but...no sleep. Very frustrating. Also, I usually have little problem falling asleep during the day, but if I do, even if it's just for a few minutes, I know I'll have a very hard time falling asleep again later. This has led to nights of me actually going to sleep for the night around 6pm-7pm because I know if i get up, I won't go back to sleep.

This is also not helped by my tendency to stay up very late on weekends (generally 3am-6am) and then sleep in until about 2pm-4pm. I can't help it...even if i'm not really doing much, i'm just not tired until that late.

The weird thing is that even if I don't get much sleep, and wake up feeling incredibly tired, by about 1pm-2pm I am really awake and ready to go, and will be able to stay up really late again without being tired. I'm just not a morning person.

I have the same problem you describe. I've tried just about everything I can think of, going as far as putting my alarm clock in the kitchen. It doesn't matter a bit. I'd still get up, hit the snooze, and go back to sleep. This could easily go on for an hour before I was awake enough to realize what I was doing.

I bought an alarm clock without a snooze, and I ended up re-setting the alarm for 10-15 minutes later. I tried changing the actual TIME on the clock so that I wouldn't be sure exactly what time it really was when the alarm went off....that worked a bit, but eventually I'd figure out the clock was 23 minutes fast and would calculate the actual time and act accordingly. I've used the cell phone alarm, but that's not much better. At this point I've nearly given up, and consider it a victory if i can make it to work between 830 and 9.

The one thing I can think of that I haven't tried yet is having someone else randomly change the time on the clock once in a while. For some reason, the uncertainty is usually enough to get me up.

Oddly enough, I have a much easier time getting up when I know I HAVE to get up for something very early. If you need me to pick you up at the airport at 430 in the morning, I will wake up at 315 on the first alarm, and be there waiting with no problem.

Something like a 36 hour day, or the 20 minute nap every 3 hours thing sounds interesting to me, but I can't imagine my schedule will ever actually allow it. A few times while driving on long trips, I've been so tired early in the trip that i was nearly falling asleep at the wheel. A 45 minute nap and I was easily able to stay awake for the rest of the 8 or so hours I had to go.

Wow that ended up being a long post.

I woke up at 1:20am last night, thinking I heard my phone buzzing, and spent a good 20 minutes looking for it. Unsuccessfully.

Well, I just got home from work now (10:30 PM) after having rehearsals after school until 4:30 PM. I have about four - 5 hours of homework to do. That's my general sleeping schedule.

2:00AM/3:00AM - 6:30 AM

Then occasionally I get to bed at 11 or so. I love those nights. Next-day me loves them more.

I usually sleep from 6:30am to 7am when my little brother comes and jumps on my bed and I get up and make him brekkie. During the night I bond with the baby and watch a lot of tv.

I cant find drugs that work for me, and I have spent the last eighteen months in abject misery.

I really dont advise you try it. It means that I cant drive because I am in danger of falling asleep at the wheel. And when I doze off in class for a minute or two I dream that Im dreaming, and then wake up and I'm awake again and not sleeping and it makes me cry.

On weekdays it's all screwed up and I'm generally cranky every day.

Wake up: 5:30am
Nap: 4pm-7:30pm
Sleep: 2am-5:30
Sometimes when I'm sick, or feeling blue, I drink vinegar. I like all kinds: balsamic, vodka, orange juice, leaves.

I usually sleep around 7-9 hours each night, no matter when I go to sleep, and any less that on rare occasions.

I have a weird sleeping schedule.
When I have Uni classes on the morning (usually at 10:00 or 12:00) I usually sleep at 03:00 and I wake up two hours before the class (I'm leaving quite far away).
When I don't have Uni classes on the morning I sleep somewhere between 05:00 and 08:00 and I usually wake up at around 15:00.

I know that this is not good for my health, but I find the night to be a good and peaceful time to concentrate.

(sleep = the time when I close my monitor and move to my bed)

Probably 4-5 hours, if I'm on my normal schedule. Two hours after midnight are generally spent in my room trying to find something on the radio to listen to, as I can't get to sleep (I get up at about 7am, and usually get to sleep some time between 2 and 3). If my parents weren't so sure that I'd somehow get even less sleep if I had the computer in my room to occupy me in the small hours (I am slightly suspicious that they'd expect me to look up porn, but I'm usually in the room with my computer on my own anyway, so that isn't really a good reason (although I doubt they'd ever really discuss it with me anyway, what with the mention of sex being pretty much taboo in the house)), I'd have something to do for those two and a half hours... but I don't. I can't even sit and use a jigsaw, because:
Spoiler:
1) It's too noisy, as I keep moving about to find the little bits of wood I've dropped
2) The wood shavings would get everywhere, and I'd be strangled for wasting the carpet

badoom-chshsh!
(or whatever noise those punchline-implying-drums make).

Okay, 2) should actually be that I generally stay up until the puzzle's done, which is sometime after I would wake up on a non-jigsaw day, in the case of the kind of puzzles I'm fond of.

4.5-6 hours some nights. 14+ other nights.

All depends when I work, when I have class, how much hw I have, and if I feel like attempting to have a social life. Naturally I voted otter sleep since it was the closest aproximation of my sleeping habits...

10:30 - 4 AM: Decide to go to bed.
2 hours later: Go to bed. Set alarm for 6-8 hours depending on time.
When alarm goes off: Shut it off, go back to bed for 0.5-4 hours.

The last step is often compounded by cats coming in and demanding attention, which means laying in bed with them. I also have that alarm clock problem where I'll turn the alarm off and go back to bed before waking up enough to realize I shouldn't go back to bed. Even when I have a pair of Nintendo DSes set 10 minutes apart, and then a program on my computer 10 minutes after that which starts up an annoying song and won't let me stop it or adjust the volume until I enter a random 8-character code, I still manage to crawl back into bed after doing so.

Thinking the only way to prevent this is to somehow have a machine that can tell when I've gone back to bed and set off an alarm, or some way to make the bed unusable for a few hours.

I usually get about 5 hours of sleep. This is a recent development, originating from my newly required 6.30 wake-up time as opposed to my arbitrary wake-up time of the last six or so years. I always thought I needed eight hours - turns out I can function on much less. It does catch up with me at the weekend though.

Something sleepish

Postby Nimz » Wed Jan 30, 2008 8:54 am UTC

In August, I wrote:I have a weekly schedule, so when I wake up depends on the day of the week. Usually when I do end up going to bed it's 2-4 hours after I am exhausted. I guess that's where those dark circles under my eyes are from...

My uptimes:
Sunday: 5:00 to >1:00
Monday: 7:00 to >2:00
Tuesday: 7:00 to >2:00
Wednesday: 9-10:00 to >3:00 (work starts at 13:00)
Thursday: 7:00 to ~23:00
Friday: 5:00 to >1:00
Saturday: 10:00 to ~0:00

But then, sometimes my alarm doesn't wake me up on Monday and my boss gets a bit upset... When I have less than 4 hours to sleep I'll often sleep on the floor on the side of my room opposite my alarm clock. That usually helps. Electronic diversions help to keep me awake, but if I pick up a good book, that can be just as bad or worse.

Since this is back to the front page, I may as well update my schedule from 6 months ago.

Uptime:
Sunday: 4:30-5:00 to 1:00-2:00
Monday: 10:00 to 3:00
Tuesday: 11:00-12:00 to 3:00
Wednesday: 11:00-12:00 to 3:00
Thursday: 10:00-11:00 to 23:00
Friday: 4:30 to 1:00
Saturday: 10:00 to 0:30

Work schedule has moved to afternoons and evenings and this is approximately what my current sleep schedule became as a result. I'm toying with the idea of getting up <6:00 regardless of the day of the week, but that will take some discipline and a radically different mindset. Maybe then I'll find out again what I look like without dark circles under my eyes.

i go to bed between 5am and 6am. i get up at 8:30am for class. i later sleep from 7pm to 9pm unless something is going on or if i have work. i then get up for the night. sometimes i sleep between 1pm and 4pm when there is no class.

i am usually completely exhausted and have trouble staying awake when not doing something active. i need to change my schedule, but i always have too much stuff going on to fix it (meaning, the homework that i need to do in the middle of the night won't go away for one day so that i can adjust, and i am too tired to do it without an evening nap so that i can go to bed at a better time).

Having Boy home for break near about killed me. D: This is what my schedule looked like for a month and a half:

Monday: 3 AM - 10 AM
Tuesday: 10 AM - 2 PM, 9 PM - 10 PM
Wednesday: 10 AM - 2 PM, 9 PM - 10 PM
Thursday: 10 AM - 2 PM, 9 PM - 10 PM
Friday: 10 AM - 2 PM
Saturday: 3 AM - 10 AM
Sunday: 3 AM - 10 AM

Keep in mind that how much sleep I got depended on how bored boy was, and could vary up to +/- 2 hours in starting and ending times. I enjoy having him home, but I am *not* looking forward to summer... D:

As a matter of fact, I have an article relating to that open in one of my tabs currently:
linkage.
How odd that I have that open. Though I have been getting into having 15 minute naps several times a day. I find it helps me stay awake/alert for a lot longer.

Though my normal sleep times are about 2am-7am. Probably not too healthy but I catch up a bit at the weekends where it turns to roughly 3/4am - mid day.

I also abuse caffeine regularly.

Also, relating to this topic, at my school people who take psychology were doing some kind of survey/study thing regarding how hours of sleep correlate to ability to concentrate under timed conditions.
Their test was some spot the difference puzzle which we had one minute to try and find all 10 differences. Amusingly, when they came to my group of friends and I, we were all asked how much sleep we had has the night before.
The answers ranged from about 7 hours to my friend who had about 3 (some vast amount of work to catch up on). Funny thing is, we all did better than most other people who took their test.
They also asked (out of interest) why we didn't sleep. Many of the answers involved computers in some way. about 50% stayed up playing world of warcraft until at least 2am.
My reason was that I had "stuff" to do on the internet. (Of course numerous wanking jokes spawned from that).
In reality, I spend my nights writing long posts like this. Which don't really go anywhere or have much point/sense in them; much like the said students shitty survey.

I generally try to keep my sleep patterns the same throughout the school year due to the fact I live rather far from my school and need to wake up every morning at a certain time..

I can honestly say that I've only pulled an all-nighter twice in my high-school career. I stand proud.

For some reason though, I can never sleep past 9 in the morning. No matter how long I've stayed up the night before.

School governs my sleep habits. I have to wake up between 6:00am and 6:15am to get to school on time, and I have to go to sleep between 1:00am and 3:00am to get all of my homework done (I do extracurrics so I don't usually get home until 8:00pm). I figure I'll keep this sleeping schedule up until the instant I get accepted into college, and then I'll slack off so I do a more humane amount of work each night, but get more sleep.

Actually, I'm not likely to do anything of the sort. *sigh* damn guilt.

Re: Sleep patterns

Past two days I've been sleeping terribly. Usually no more than ~3 hours at a stretch if that. Bizarre and disconcerting dreams as well accompanied by a lot of thrashing in my sleep. One of my roommates said I spoke in my sleep but refuses to tell me what I said. :|

Weird bit is things in my waking life are the best they've been in years.

@fossa: When I get little sleep I have the same thrashing and disconcertingly vivid dreams too.

My normal sleeping pattern was until yesterday, go to sleep at 1am, wake up around 9, then doze til 10, repeat hourly til 1 at which point I feel bad for not doing anything.
However yesterday and to an extent today my sleeping is, stay awake til have strange half sleeping waking moments, get up at 7am, stay up to 3 repeat tonight.

Damn you morning lectures and personal hygiene needs.

You lack a space for more than 9 hours.

I'm usually up by 2 in the afternoon (just in time for work), sometimes earlier. It doesn't help that I have trouble sleeping (I'm usually in bed by four or five in the morning.)

Recently I've developed a strange, annoying pattern. I sleep until 1 or 2 PM no matter what time I go to bed. It's driving me nuts.,
